Photo Shoot
3. Photo Shoot

My biggest regret from our adoption was not taking professional photos of our sweet birth mom and our son. I know they would have meant so much to her and I would love for him to have them as well. Cell phone pictures are nice but a photographer can capture emotions and moments that you might have missed. A photo of birth mom and baby in a pretty frame is a perfect keepsake.

Hand Print Art
4. Hand Print Art

Pinterest is full of amazing diy projects for hand print art! You can make a hand print into just about any gift and it captures their little hands in that perfect baby phase that goes by so quickly. You can also make it a yearly tradition to make a new work of art with their growing hands!

 Memory Blanket
5. Memory Blanket

Everyone loves to receive a handmade blanket, but this one has so much meaning! Made from baby onesies or pieces of the hospital blanket, you can add memories and special items that will mean so much to your birth mother. With the ability to customize your quilt however you'd like, the possibilities are endless.
